Bad Religion have chosen, the difficult but right decision, to cancel all touring commitments for the foreseeable future. The band had been scheduled to tour through North America, Japan, and Europe, including a co-headlining tour with Alkaline Trio (which had nearly sold-out).
The band released the following statement:
We are grateful and humbled by the unwavering support from all our fans, every venue and festival that invited us to play, and especially those who have invested resources to see us perform live all over the world this year. As everyone is well aware, the ongoing hazard of Covid-19 has made it unsafe to gather in large groups. Therefore, to maintain the health of our fans, crew, and ourselves, Bad Religion will not be playing any shows in 2020. You may claim refunds or vouchers depending on the market; please check in with your local promoter and point of purchase.
We will carefully monitor how this pandemic progresses; when it is safe for all of us to gather together, we will return. Until then, be safe, and take care of each other.
